RONALD VAN GELDEREN
Armed with a slew of new tracks and enough energy to power 24.000 homes, Ronald
van Gelderen (RvG) is striking back and returning bigger than ever following a short
hiatus. Having travelled all over the world for more than 10 years, consistently
delivering big tunes, RvG remains one of the most established DJs at the moment.
Countries such as the UK, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Switzerland,
Tunisia, Germany, Poland, Israel, China, Canada, Spain and USA are still madly in
love with RvG’s trademark sound: sophisticated big room trance.
With notable signings in the past to labels like High Contrast and Tsunami – where
he released massive singles and remixes – his distinctive in-demand sound has
garnered him enormous respect on the trance scene.
Today, RvG is still very much cutting out his own sound in the global trance scene: a
style which combines electro, tech and trance rolled into one phat soundtrack.
He first made his mark back in 1997 as a producer – under the famous alter ego Kid
Vicious – releasing the massive club hits Re-Form, Pants Down Spanking and
Contagious, before going on to co-produce with the big boys like Tiësto. He penned
Urban Train and Suburban Train before finally getting behind his own name. Huge
hits Proceed and Sustain on Tsunami, Cold Storage on High Contrast Recordings,
and remixes of Veracocha’s Carte Blanche on Positiva and Dogzilla’s Without You on
Nebula followed – to huge critical acclaim.
By releasing many big tunes in a row like F!lth, This Way and Realize, RvG showed
he was constantly able to re-invent himself as a producer, before making a big
statement with the release of Dirty Rocker, featuring driving beats, nasty synths and
a deadly catchy vocal.
Due to health reasons, however, RvG was forced to take a few steps back in 2011,
resulting in a 1.5 year hiatus. He spent his time, however, building a new and
stronger team around him and experimenting with different genres in the music
scene before deciding to return to the style he loved most: Trance.
In 2014, Ronald’s comeback became a fact with his new release I Will Love Again,
which immediately caught the attention of Armin van Buuren, who signed the brand
new track on the Armada imprint A State of Trance. I Will Love Again features vocals
by the incredible vocal talent Gaelen, guaranteeing goose bumps and a huge surge
of energy. Many releases such as, Ratio, Redemption, Bedrock, Bliss, Nightwalker
and Waking followed in 2015. With an amazing remix of the Bonzai classic The First
Rebirth in the beginning of 2016 and a beautiful euphoric vocal release on Vandit
coming in September proves once again that RvG still has his place in the DJ league.
